    February 10, 2020 - Rich dark cherry and some vanilla

    January 1, 2020 - Medium plus red, thin garnet edge. Fresh cherry nose. Fresh cherry fruit with great concentration and sweetness, a bit of vanilla and leather. This seems extracted and shows considerable tannin. More aromatics toward the end of the bottle. Happy New Year!

    December 31, 2019 - PnD let air for 2hrs.

    Beautifully balanced with fruit and savoury notes. Tons of life ahead. Delicious.

    December 27, 2019 - Immer wieder ein grandioser Brunello. Rubinrote Farbe im Glas. In der Nase voluminöse Fruchtaromen nach Johannis-und Brombeere. Im Mund voluminös, frisch und vollmundig, fast fruchtig mit tollen Röst-und Gewürzaromen. Deutliche Tannine. Langer Abgang.

    December 27, 2019 - This is almost at peak drinking window. Rich and decadent. Loads of ripe red cherry fruit with florals, coffee bean and black tea. So luscious and drinkable. This is seductive and it just pulls you right in to every glass. Long leathery finish with sweet red fruit. Supple lingering tannin. Wow this is one of the best castelgiocondo ever. Drink now-2026. Though this won't die for a decade or more.
